We’re like vibrating stones, in a way. Have you ever seen that movie, Meetings With Remarkable Men? It’s a movie about Gurdjeff’s life, and in the very first scene there are some musicians meeting for a competition to vibrate the stones in the mountains, somewhere in Afghanistan or whatever. They’re all playing beautiful music then finally one guy starts singing some overtones and tunes up to the vibrations, the resonance of all these mountains. That’s what they did to us.
